Franz Ferdinand To Release Double DVD In November

Published: 2005-10-20
Stylish Scots chaps Franz Ferdinand have announced plans to release a double-disc DVD on November 22. Though the DVD does not yet have a title, plenty of info about its contents has already been released.

Disc one will include various live performances, a behind-the-scenes documentary wittily titled Tour De Franz and, yes, even a couple of karaoke clips for you to croon along with at home. Disc two, meanwhile, will feature two live shows in their entirety (from FF gigs in London and San Francisco), as well as exclusive band interviews and three bonus live songs filmed in Australia and New Zealand.

And, as if that wasn't enough good news for fans of the Franz, singer Alex Kapranos recently told Iceberg Radio that the band has already begun thinking about the follow-up to the recently released You Could Have It So Much Better (currently at #6 on the Canadian charts).

"The most destructive circumstances for contemporary groups is the constant touring and the flogging to death of one record," said Kapranos. "I kind of prefer in a way the mid-Sixties workaholic kind of attitude where they try to get the bands into the studio twice a year to record something new. Then you're pushing the most important part of the band -- the creative side of the band."

Franz Ferdinand will be the featured musical guest on this week's edition of NBC's Saturday Night Live.
